This 1689 sq ft historic charmer features large spacious rooms, high ceilings, built-in buffet, and many modern amenities. A large eat-in kitchen, dining room, living room and family room (could possibly be turned into a main floor bedroom) make up the main floor while 3 bedrooms sporting newer carpeting comprise the second floor. Hook-up for a stackable washer/dryer is on main floor or in basement. Great 16 x 12 deck overlooking fenced yard with firepit which is nice and level for a pool. A Handyman's dream is the oversize 2+ car garage with additional 3+ car parking situated off the alley. Price has been set to reflect the out-of-town seller will do no repairs. All newer windows but the front ones (2), 200 amp service with 100 amp to garage. Appraisal reflects a higher price than originally listed; seller has dropped price to make room for elbow grease equity.
